lyrics

I'm on my knees
When you're on your heels
Because nothing ever appears how you feel
And I'm quiet to appease the quiver of your lips
Retching, I spit out my teeth
Undone shackles at my feet. You know too well I'm a threat to me. It's not the life for me. It's not a chance to be.

But if we had tongues to speak
We would tell all lies and secrets
You can't keep

I never thought
I would be sucked in.
The sky I painted dark blue in my eyes for this.
It was you who held my heart for ransom and I always hated it.
It was you who held my heart in
The place I never left.
The threat of always coming last.
I'm mortified by the love that swings back.

I know you hate where you're living
And you hate where you're loving
But I hope you find what you seek

I'm on my knees
When you're on your heels
Because nothing ever appears how you feel
And I'm quiet to appease the quiver of your lips
The arms never stretch so wide until they need to quit
Once more I'd wrap my car around a pole before I wrap my mind around your shit. Fuck.
